4/27 Friday Bead Night

Allie and I went to Michaels, in Batavia, for Bead Night. I mad the 2 bracelets on the left and then came home and made the other 2. The one on the left is mine. The other 3 are for sale.

A big thank you to Amy, the instructor.

Sunny is moving along

I have been stitching on HAED SK Sunny all week. I finished a row and halfway through another row. Nearing the end of page 2 and then onto page 3, which is the last page. Which also has less confetti stitching.

Since my last post I also finished reading Dark Lover by J.R. Ward. A Vampire book and some erotica in it. I enjoyed it. I also finished the audiobook, Blow Out by Catherine Coulter. I am now reading the 2nd book of the Hunger Games, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. Hard to put down. I will be starting the audiobook, Point Blank by Catherine Coulter, tomorrow.

Tonight Justin and I went to the movies and saw The Lucky One. Really good. I read the book when it first came out so not sure how accurate the movie was compared to the book. But 1 of my co workers read the book last week and saw the movie over the weekend. She said it didn't follow the book very well.

Well that's it for now. Have a good night and thanks for reading.

Sunny is moving along

I have been stitching on her all week and moving along. Page 2 is almost complete. About 2 more weeks. Page 3 is a full page but most of it has large blocked areas of 1 color and not alot of confetti.
HAED SK Sunny:

Today is a sad day in the entertainment business. Dick Clark has passed away, at the age of 82, from a massive hear attack. You will be missed!

Today I listened to quite a few chapters of Blow Out by Catherine Coulter. It is hard to turn off.

Today I broke down and ordered from Fire Mountain Beads as I want to make a few of these bracelets.

I love bracelets so I want to make a lot of them and sell them plus my scissor fobs. Trying to use up what beads I have so I can get better quality beads.

My cat, Ruby, is doing a lot better. She has an upper respiratory infection but her lungs are clear. Scott and Dylan took her to the vet yesterday. She is on antibiotics. Plus I have had her locked in my bedroom at night, with me, and the vaporizer going. Today she is perky and playful and getting into trouble. She even asked for food and she hasn't eaten much in a few days. Thanks for all the concerns.

Today's movie was The Rite, it was ok and based on a true story.  I also watched Live With Kelly! and General Hospital. Also tonight was Revenge, very good.

Time to go to bed, 6am comes to quickly lol.

Progress pics

Last week I stitched a little bit on HAED SK Sunny.
Yesterday I pulled out Mirabilia's Halloween Fairy.

On Friday, April 13, my son, Dylan, graduated from Universal Technical Institute (UTI). This is in Exton, PA and it is to be an auto technician. We are very proud of him as he almost quit twice.

I have a kitty with a cold right now and she is eating a little bit and drinking water. Her nose is stuffy and she sneezes a lot but less than she has been. I have been playing nurse. I steamed up the bathroom and took her in there and then she slept in my bedroom last night, with the vaporizer going. She has had it since Thursday and is not running a fever. May have DH take her to the vet tomorrow if she doesn't feel any better.

April WIPocalypse and another row of SK Sunny done

I do have some catching up to do but first for the April WIPocalypse.
Since March's I have finished 2 projects:
LK Halloween Rules
Then I finished JCS Halloween Collection Brittercup's Halloween Cat Tree

My 2 other WIPs that I am working on til done is HAED SK Sunny. I have finished a lot of this. Yesterday I even finished another row.
My other WIP is Mirabilia Halloween Fairy.

I had my birthday on April 2. My manager and the other young woman at work ordered pizza out and when I wasn't looking had decorated our breakroom. Made me feel special. Scott bought me a George Michael CD. Justin took me out to see Hunger Games and then went out to dinner at Joe's Crab Shack. Loved both things. I have an awesome family. Wednesday I finished another book. Goody Goody Gunshoes by Sammi Carter. I am reading the last book of the series now called Sucker Punch. I am also listening to Blow Out by Catherine Coulter.
Last night I fixed a ham dinner for my inlaws, which they enjoyed. I also fixed another ham dinner today for my family.
I have been watching movies on TV too:
I am Number Four - Good
The Dilemma
Due Date - stupid funny
Fair Game

I have been DVRing a bunch of movies for the evenings when my shows aren't on and when they are on hiatus this summer.

Thanks for reading,
